My "update" post describes my attempt to do just that, but it looks like I had misspelled the kernel option to disable!

I'll retry that.

I had thought that I might be able to disable this feature in the BIOS, but there really doesn't seem to be any control over ACPI in the BIOS.

Another minor glitch: I was going to redirect the console out a serial port to grab the boot messages, but this laptop is new enough that it doesn't have an internal serial port (but has a parallel port, which I don't need). Can I use a USB serial adapter as my console?
